A long time ago, I dont know around when I was 11, 12 back in 1994 or around I played on payphones a lot. I called this number and it connected and there were like 5 or 6 people talking. I stayed on an listened to them, after they all got through talking one of the people stayed on the line and knew I was there and called me a lurker. I called 1800 888 8888. Was funny a day or two later i tried calling back and the number was busy.

On Thursday October 10, 2013 California USA Time Zone Just Got a Call Received a call from: 888-888-8888. Gentleman had an Indian accent and was calling because my computer had sent corrupted files to the "Google Server". Had me look in various places on my computer which showed red error messages and yellow warning messages. Had me go a site called "teamviewer" which allowed him to remotely use my computer. He showed me the same things that I had done earlier via his tutelage and said that for about 45 min. I was to let them fix my computer by getting rid of all of the warnings. He said that it would be a one-time payment, at the end, which would allow me to continue to use this service, and I would have to go on line and do the payment in a different manner as they do not do anything with credit cards themselves, but he did ask me what I would be using as a credit card (e.g., Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, etc.) Then all I had to do was to wait and he would call back when completed, and he'd show me that it was cleared/cleaned up. I waited but was very nervous about this - I never thought I'd fall for anything. I got online with my cell phone and quickly looked up that Microsoft would never do anything like this. During this time I was watching what was being 'done'. It looked like someone was just looking at what he'd had me do earlier, then clicking off, then doing about the same thing (fake busy work to me). I clicked off the Internet connection. The man called back and I told him I was uncomfortable with having someone remotely working on my computer. He told me that he'd given me a number to call to verify (this number was: 213-455-3317). I did not call that back at that time and he said he'd wait while I called it. I hung up the phone with him.

My thought is that when I told him the kind of card I had, this was used to 'scan' my computer, along with my telephone number and email address that he had. When you order something online, you use your telephone number and email address, so this info. would help them identify areas in my computer. I have NO idea if my hard drive was copied, or what happened. I never thought that I would be gullible and fall for something like this - yes, I am assuming that this was totally fake ... Please no one else fall for this. As of right now, I have no clue what harm this has done to my computer and to any financial info. that they may have gotten.

888-888-8888 Thank goodness the area code is 888. The 888-8888 number in my area is the number of a very respectable plumber! Sheesh! We are in a war against these people for our privacy. We pay prime money for our phone service; we should never get junk phone calls. But someone, like the phone company, and other bogus call monsters, are making money. Somehow, we have to fight back!

This number is active once again. If you go to www.800notes.com, you'll see more current call information from 2013 concerning who's making calls with this number. It is a 'utility' number, which can be used as a Caller ID number by computer programs that robo-dial telephones. Supposedly, it is NOT active on cell phones. It is no longer associated with Alliance Carpet, as it was some years ago.

If you report this call to the Do Not Call folks or the FBI, they will log the call, but cannot do anything about it because it's just a number that masks the true identity of the caller.

Is it a scam - or would you be scammed by the caller? I think the chances are very nearly 100% that you would.

I have a phone my my use, not for asshats. These calls are getting worse regardless of the Do Not Call list. I think get a copy of the DNC just to have a list of known good numbers. I run Phonetray on my computer to block calls. They get one call in, I add them to blocked calls, it rings once after that and they get a message. http://www.phonetray.com/phonetrayfree.htm Well worth a donation if you get good use from it like I do. Never have to pick up moronic and annoying calls more than once.

Toll Free (800) numbers can't make outgoing calls. The PBX's they're attached to make the calls. Whenever you see an 800 number on your caller ID, it IS spoofed, 100% of the time.

Ok here is the deal the person that stated that there is noway that a 800 888 number can not be blocked is right. I called my phone company Comcast and they said the samething. So this may be a waste off time but I am going to write a letter to my congressman to see if there can be anything done. I get at least 80 calls a month so I guess it's worth a shot in the dark to try. Something as got to be done this is getting out of control. But here is one idea that I know a couple of people are doing dropping land line and just useing their cell this might be someting I might think about

Received call at almost 1am on cell phone; scared it was emergency or bad news, very few people have this number; said hello several times but no answer although I could tell someone was on the line. Think maybe it was my ex; I agree with a previous post that its a universal "anonymous" false caller id that anyone can use via internet calling.

888-888-8888 is not a specific business but rather an "alias" phone number that a caller
can utilize to disguise both their identity and call origin. The number itself could actually be any
series of random numbers as these outbound calls are often made via the internet using a
VOIP application and thus are extremely difficult to trace. Further those random number sequences can sometimes be a legitimate business, organization or residence that has nothing to do with the caller. Their are multiple "phishing" scams utilizing this technique promising everything from free vacations and shopping sprees to cash prizes. Many will of course ask for your credit card or checking account number to cover a nominal shipping fee. As most of these scams are located in foreign countries the U.S. Do not call List and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act are of little concern to them. Best to hang up, block the number at the handset level if your phone has the functionality or demand your phone carrier block the number at the network level. Carriers do have the ability but you will never find a frontline customer service rep who will offer. You'll have to push a little.

7/29: This was a robo-call from Sheriff Joe Arpaio telling me to vote for Vernon Parker. The call was disguised as "Alliance Carpet" with the number 1-888-888-8888 in the Caller ID. A Google search does not show any such company in Arizona. This is total fraud and misrepresentation and the Sheriff always accuses immigrants of stealing peoples' identity and information!

Just for fun, if you are working or living in an environment that you could do this in, answer the phone whenever a suspected telemarketer is on the line. If you hear a real human voice and they start their shpeel, hold a gas charged air-horn to the phone & blast them for a second or two! You can get them from amazon.com for as little as $7.00 for the 1.4oz can or under $30.00 for the 8oz which will last a very long time if used in short bursts. Refill 8oz cans are about $16.00. Free Shipping often available on orders over $25.00!

Even if it's a recording, wait and see if a human takes over the call or if there is an option for them to start recording you, then blast them!

Don't get mad, GET REVENGE!

We have received many calls from this # & company. Never get a live person. Have had a recording ask if this was Jerimiah Guthrie. Upon answering was disconnected. We have had other calls for this person who I am assuming owes money. How do we stop these calls if we cannot call the number back & talk to a real person?

Silence then male caller identified as representing 411.com requesting to speak w/ manager about confirming information on listing. Information confirmed and caller offered to add more contact information at no charge. Upon inquiry it was revealed that caller was actually selling a listing for $400+ and as I was in mid-sentence turning down the offer, he hung up.

Have gotten this twice on our office phone. 1st time was about a month ago, it was a man, with men in the background, he said, "you work for liars and crooks, how can you handle working for liars and crooks?" 2nd call, came in this morning, asked for my boss by his 1st name. I said he wasn't in and asked to take a message and the woman said "is there another manager I can speak with?" I said, "can you tell me what you need?" She replied, "nothing from you" and hung up.

I receive blocked calls at all hours of the day and night on my cell phone from this caller. They leave a message "This is an important call for -first- -last-. Please aske -first- -last- to call us at 888 888 88 88. Thank you, Good Bye."
What do we have to do to get this to stop. Just because we have phones shouldn't make us have to tolerate these fools calling in the middle of the night. If the law can't stop them the phone companies should make it easier for us to block them!

Somehow they managed to avoid having caller ID register their call to me, but they did leave a message with a computerized voice, asking for me by name, to return the call. Obviously it is a shady and dubious pack of phone jackals.

My cell phone ID comes up as "restricted" every time. Usually they do not leave a message since I do not answer and it goes to voice mail. I am on the do not call list. However, the other day, they did leave an automated message that said to call 888-888-8888. This restricted call comes in every single day, even on Sundays. I am in North Carolina and the calls are always between 8am and 9pm. I've never gotten any midnight calls.

I corrected him and said no I don't.

Keep calling our place of business with offers and/or requesting information regarding our taking of credit cards, we tell them we are not interested or they need to talk with the owner, or they start asking for personal info like what was your name and social security number?.....

I get these calls 15 times a day - they give you the option of pressing 7 to stop the calls - from Scott - Card Services - but it does not work - then a couple of times I have pressed one to talk to a representative - get someone on the phone first time a man - second time a woman - and they both hang up on you when you say you want them to stop calling - and today I went along with their program of saying that I had $45K in unsecured debt - she wanted my name - I told her someone was at the door - could I get her number to call back - made up 888-888-8888 sounds like a scam to me - caller ID does show Steph Powers

My caller ID recorded a call from 888-888-8888 yesterday at 4:44 p.m. I never answer anonymous calls because it's just the usual perverts trying to sell illegal drugs or worthless warranties or credit card scams or whatever.

I know it's not a company I do business with because they all identify themselves on Caller ID and I've been on the DNC list for years.

If I'm at home I just pick up the phone and then immediately hang up. If nothing else, I don't have to listen to the perverts' spiel!

These numbers have been calling me anywhere from 1-6 times per day for months, now... The first (and only time) I answered, it was a recording... If I "Ignore" it when it's incoming, it leaves me a hang-up message. I figured out that of I just let it go to voice mail, it won't leave any message. I have those (now 5) numbers programmed in my phone as SCAM ALERT, so I don't accidently answer these calls. It is still annoying, though, to see that they have called me that many times per day. When I googled them, there was an old (2004) reference to a class action suit, but it didn't go into details.

They just called my office, my boss picked up.
They asked in a very loud demanding voice and said, "Can I speak to the owner of the company, regarding an investigation, I'll hold".
My boss said, "they are not in, I can take a message though".
He then said, "tell them to come to work, thats the message".

And hung up... Charming guy huh???

I pulled this number from the website for Acai Berry Detox: https://www.acaiberrydetox.com/offer/lp7no/cart.aspx.
It is listed as their customer service number.
Did I mention that at the bottom of their website they indicate the are in Cyprus:

Preciousmind Trading LTD, 6 Ioanni Stylianou, 2nd floor, office/flat 202, 2003 Nicosia, Cyprus
The website looks very professional; very well done.

Started getting the calls in the middle of the night, nightly. received earliest call but was a hang up at 9:30 pm which is early in comparisonto the 3 am calls. I gave it a silent ring tone so I could document the calls but not be bothered by them any further.
